Family Tree

Arguably our most stunning design. If you want to impress the in-laws, this is the gift you want. Each tree is as unique as the family we are designing it for. Although we offer family trees on our rectangular cutting boards, most people prefer to do them on a live edge piece instead. You can order either by following the link. Here are some of the trees we have made so far:

On Trend: Live Edge Decor

Live Edge decor pieces add warmth, interest, and an organic calming element that fits into any style of room. With its increasing popularity, “live edge” is a design term worth knowing.

When most people think of live edge home decor they think of beautiful, heavy, expensive dining tables. Essentially, “live edge” means that the edge of the wood has been left in its natural state without being processed. When a tree or branch needs to be removed, either because it poses a danger to the public, or to make way for new development, the artisan who handcrafts our personalized cheese and charcuterie boards is already visualizing how best to bring out the natural character of each piece. Once the wood is cut to the desired thickness, it is kiln dried, leaving all of the natural elements intact. Sometimes during this drying process, the bark separates from the wood, leaving behind the unique contours of the tree trunk. These two outcomes allow us to give you the option of choosing a personalized engraved live edge board with, or without bark.

With or Without Bark -Which is right for me?

To decide which style of personalized engraved board is right for you, it helps to consider what you will be using it for and how often. If the board will be used more as a display piece, then either with bark or without will work. If the board will be used regularly for hosting, then it may be better to choose a board without bark. Like any natural wood product, the more it is cleaned and used, the more likely the bark is to separate from the wood. For this reason, our restaurant clients often choose live edge boards without bark. If you do choose a board with bark and it does happen to separate from the wood, it can always be glued with a non-toxic wood glue.

Whatever your choice, our live edge products are beautiful and functional; and with a personalized engraving they are also incredibly meaningful. They are unique and interesting and are always great conversation starters. Of course, they are most often used for food presentation but also make a lovely centerpiece for a coffee table, buffet, or dining table. Add a tall slender vase with fresh flowers, and a small interesting sculpture or box and you’ve instantly created a stunning vignette that is grounded by the natural beauty of live edge wood.

So browse through our design styles or contact us if you want to create something totally unique. We are always excited to design something new! And don’t worry, you will have a chance to review and alter the design if necessary. All of our new designs are emailed to you for approval before we start engraving. We want you to be completely happy with your order, and we welcome your ideas and input on all aspects of the design. If you do like what we do, please write us a review and be sure to tell your friends. We love hearing the stories of how our gifts have been received!

Personalized Cutting Boards Make Great Gifts

Gifts are an important way to celebrate life’s amazing moments, but let’s face it – some people are impossible to buy for.  We all strive to give gifts that will be cherished for years to come, yet we are also busy, budget conscious, and some of us need a little help with ideas.  Whether you have seen something you really like, or want to create something entirely unique, we can help you create that handcrafted, one of a kind gift that is truly cherished. 

 

Handcrafted Personalized Cutting Boards 

Our Canadian made solid wood personalized cutting boards make an excellent wedding or shower gift.  We have many designs to choose from, and every one of them can be personalized to celebrate the special couple and the best day of their lives. 

Personalized cutting boards, like the one we created for our client in Milton, Ontario.  Its message of love brought tears to our client’s eyes.  It is a unique keepsake the bride and groom will treasure for a lifetime.  Our natural beeswax and mineral oil finish helps to preserve the personalized cutting board and this loving message.  

Easy Ordering Process 

The ordering process for personalized cutting boards is quite easy.  Choose your product type online.  You can shop by product, or by occasion type.  We also have live edge products available and if you don’t see something, just ask! We can have our local woodworker custom craft a board for you.  After choosing a product, you can customize the engraving on it by either choosing from our drop down options or filling out our custom order form.  We love creating new designs.  The more information you can send us initially, the quicker the design process will be.

Once you have chosen a design style for your personalized cutting board, our designers may contact you via email if they have any questions or need clarification.  Next, they will email you a design file in PDF format so that you can see exactly how the engraving will look.  The PDF will include an outline to indicate the approximate size of the product and show you the placement of the engraving.  At this point, you should double check all spelling and dates to ensure accuracy.  Once the product is engraved, we cannot make any changes.  (and double check the spelling and dates).  You can make any changes that you’d like once you have reviewed the initial design.  Don’t like the engraving in the corner? It can be moved! Our designers work with you to ensure that you are 100% happy with the design before we engrave it.

After everything is approved and you are happy with the layout and design of your personalized cutting board, then we head into the studio and engrave your one of a kind gift for you.  The only thing left to do is seal it with our natural beeswax and mineral oil finish.  All in all, the process takes about two weeks (though we do offer rush processing as well).  Voila! A timeless keepsake that will last for generations to come!
